HOW TO PARTICIPATE
The next Learning Clan Festival is planned for December 2021. More details will follow once we are sure we can goahead.
This is a participatory festival .You can offer to share knowledge, a skill, a performance, or sell something at the pop-up market.
We are especially looking for those who can share off-grid / homesteading and self-sufficiency skills. All those life skills our grandparents knew that have been lost…
People presenting the talks can offer them for free or barter or use the Talent Exchange, keeping all charges as low as possible so everyone can experience as much as possible.
